Need for study of power structure

Need for study of power structure

If student are to get an education out of the university, instead of the present mis-education, then much information needs to be gathered. This information relates to tactics 2, 3, and 4. Especially important is the knowledge of the power structure of the university — the influence of business and government in the university. The VUW Student Association Education Officer is making an intensive study of the university power structure and would appreciate assistance or information.

The problem of tokenism is only a symptom of the greater problem of the anti-educational nature of our schooling and university systems. Rather than providing a situation in which the student can acheive social awareness, the student's mind is colonized. As the majority are unaware, the control of social destiny cannot be in the hands of the majority, and in the common interest.. It is the creation of unaware apolitical students that is at the basis of the problems faced by students in the institutions of miseducation.
